We often hear from people who want a single grinder they can use with their espresso machine as well as for drip, french press, and anything in between. The Baratza Vario fits this bill perfectly. With its dual cam stepped adjustment system you can easily and repeatedly switch between a wide range of grind sizes, with a total of 230 individual settings. While the Vario is a commercial grinder with 54mm ceramic flat burrs with a throughput of 1.9 grams per second its sleek contemporary design, small foot print, and adjustability for any style of coffee also make it perfect as a home grinder. Baratza teamed up with Mahlkönig to bring you these high-quality burrs that stay sharper longer. Ceramic burrs last up to 2 times longer than steel burrs and also transfer less heat to the coffee, making for clearer flavor in the cup.
As if the Vario’s wide grind range wasn’t enough, with its 3 programmable timed dose settings you can easily the same weight in coffee without having to break out a scale. Once you have your grind dialed in simply note how long it takes to grind your desired dose (this is displayed on the grinder) and program one of the buttons for this time for easy repeatability. To make espresso pulling even easier the Vario is equipped with a PortaHolder that is universally adjustable for any portafilter which allows for hands-free operation.
Driving the Vario is a powerful DE motor that turns slowly, resulting in cool, quiet operation, and permits expanded grinding time for when you need to make a big batch of drip or are hosting a party and want to show off your barista skills.

Doserless grinders dispense coffee directly into the portafilter. When combined with a grind timer, this design improves coffee freshness, consistency and minimizes waste.
These grinders can eliminate the variable of how much coffee is ground by controlling grind time or grind weight. For espresso, once grind volume is set, simply adjust the grind gradually finer or courser to create that perfect 25 second 1.5oz espresso shot. Not only can this ease the learning curve and greatly improve consistency of espresso shots, it also improves cleanliness by letting you dispense exactly the amount of coffee you want.
Stepped adjustment is incremental with defined “clicks” to indicate changes. The size of the grind adjustment depends on the model, but some models offer nearly infinite adjustment for fine tuning espresso shots, while some offer easier all purpose adjustment between drip coffee, French press, etc. Visual markers for adjustment can simplify the learning curve with a chart of recommended settings for various brew methods.
